Now that the PlayStation 4 is launching in Japan we are starting to get new trailers that are coinciding with the big day. This next trailer that is coinciding with the launch of the PlayStation 4 is Yakuza Ishin.
The Yakuza series has been around for a long time, and although it hasn’t been the biggest success in the US, it has remained popular in Japan. This trailer showcases characters from the game to the tune of a rock song that actually fits really well with the video. Themes such as progress overtaking older values and fighting until you can fight no longer pop up throughout.
Yakuza Ishin is releasing with the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan, though there is are no current plans for a US release. Check out the trailer below.
Condemn OR Condone: I really liked this trailer and felt it showcased a pretty compelling drama of old values clashing with new ones. Although the Yakuza series is something I’ve never experienced, I have always found the setting and story interesting. Hopefully this new installment gets localized at some point.
